Description

From the author of The Architecture of Happiness, a bold argument on how we can still benefit, without believing, from the wisdom, the beauty, and the consolatory power that religion has to offer.

     What if religions are neither all true nor all nonsense? The long-running and often boring debate between fundamentalist believers and non-believers is finally moved forward by Alain de Botton's inspiring new book, which boldly argues that the supernatural claims of religion are entirely false -- but that religion still has some very important things to teach the secular world.
